Awesome Vegan Chickpea Omelette
Eggs were really never my thing before I became vegan. I liked scrambled eggs once in awhile but that was it. So giving up eggs wasn't a big deal at all for me once I became vegan.
Having a quick tofu scramble has been my substitute for years if I wanted a savory side with my vegan pancakes but this alternative will leave the tofu scramble in the dust.
Not only is this a quick recipe but it is super nutritious! Garbanzo beans aka chickpeas are a great source of protein, fiber, potassium and iron. They support weight loss, protect against heart disease and improve gut health.
